“An argument which the Vedantists advance in support of the theory of Reincarnation is that ‘Nothing is destroyed in the universe.’
Destruction in the sense of the annihilation of a thing is unknown to the Vedantic philosophers, just as it is unknown to the modern scientists.
They say ‘non-existence can never become existence and existence can never become non-existence.’ Or, in other words, that which did not exist can never exist, and conversely that which exists in any form can never become non-existent.
This is the law of nature.
Another consideration is that the beginning, ending and continuing are concepts of the human mind; their significance depends entirely upon our conception of time.
But we all know that time has no absolute existence. It is merely a form of our knowledge of our own existence in relation to nature.
The conception of time vanishes at the sleep of death; just as it does every night when we are in should sleep. Death resembles the state of our sound sleep.
The soul wakes up from the sleep of death just in the same manner as the insects awake in spring after sleeping the long and rigid winter-sleep, as a chrysalis in the bed of a cocoon spun by itself in autumn.
Nature teaches us the great lesson of rebirth.

Mozart, the great musician, wrote a sonata when he was four years old and an opera in his eight year.
There are many such instanced of wonderful powers exhibited by artists and painters when they were quite young.
Emerson says in his essay on Experience, “We wake and find ourselves on a stair. There are stairs below us which we seem to have ascended; there are stairs above us, many a one, which go upward and out of sight.”
It is an interesting image to hold in your mind, and one which compliments the statement that explains Reincarnation as a Law.
‘Birth must be followed by death and death must be followed by birth.’
